PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Police say two suicide bombers attacked a sprawling compound housing a police station and government offices in northwest Pakistan, killing at least two police officers and wounding 15 other people. The attack occurred Thursday in the Bara neighborhood in northwest Pakistan bordering Afghanistan. Police chief Akhtar Hayat said part of the compound collapsed after the bombing. Pakistani Taliban in a statement have claimed responsibility for the attack in Bara, a district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The latest attack came hours after Pakistani Taliban shot and killed two police officers and wounded two others in an overnight gun attack at a roadside checkpoint in the city of Peshawar.
